I recently hired Tracey and have nothing but positive things to say. After being spoiled by a home gym, I wasn’t expecting to hire her bc of the commute time; but after a few weeks of workouts, I am hooked. She listens, she’s flexible, and she really cares. She preps workouts beforehand, creates a tailored nutrition plan, and is laser focused on helping me reach my goals. She holds me accountable through encouragement and advice without being pushy. And above all, she beams with the good-heartedness we all need in a trainer/mentor/coach. I expect to see big results with Tracey and am happy to have found her.

I've met with Sarah twice for life coaching, and I immediately felt like she understood where I am in my life and what I want to achieve. She is very easy to talk to and is very good at connecting on a personal level. I highly recommend her.

Drew became my mentor during an internship with Northwestern Mutual. At the time, I had no idea that relationship would extend well beyond that summer, but the impact he had on me back then still carries over in the way I approach my career and life in general. What sets Drew apart is his attention to detail in identifying what motivates each individual and what makes them "tick." He is able to easily adapt his style in doing so to bring people out of their comfort zone and open them up to new levels of growth in a supportive and encouraging way. Most of all, he truly cares about each person he works with and is willing to go well out of his way to help them.

Kate is fantastic, you should hire her. She worked with me for over 4 years as both a life coach and body movement coach. Because of working with Kate, I am able to move more with ease (the body work) and also live a more fulfilling life (the life coaching work). Highly recommended.

    My High School hired Tristan James to be the motivational speaker at our senior class convocation. He was absolutely phenomenal and his words left a monumental mark on every single person in the audience. We could not have asked for anything more! I 100% recommend Tristan James to anyone looking for a person to bring inspiration, wisdom, and happiness to their guests at any event. You rock Tristan!

      I worked with Cara less than a year ago and there is nothing like having my own personal Career Cheerleader! Over a 3 month timeframe she helped me stay motivated when I was hit with a daunting realignment task at my job. She let me know when she was available, and I reached out often! Sometimes once a week, sometimes once a day to just to talk though issues I had while managing the project. She was readily available, professional, and one of the big things she did that kept me motivated was reminding me of my own personal success while working the project for the company. She encouraged me to consistently document all of my personal successes while On the project saying things like "You are more than just their employee, you are your own hero" . This reminder placed into action allowed me to notate my milestones along the way and kept me focused on the road ahead without the distraction of things I thought weren't going well or could have been better. We all need a pat on the back every once in a while (sometimes a push forward) & she gets it! Thanks again Cara.

          Pulling no punches, but with a maximum of kindness, Michele is a model of sensual and self-confronting honesty. She speaks to the part of you that "knows better" but sometimes gets overwhelmed. A great coach for living life fully!

            Q & A

            Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

            What is a career coach?

            If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

            • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
            • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
            • Defining your career goals
            • Creating a plan for job searching
            • Improving networking strategies and skills
            • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
            • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
            • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

            Why is career counseling important?

            Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

            • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
            • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
            • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
            • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
            • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
            • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
            • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

            What is a career counselor?

            If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

            Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

            How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

            When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

            How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

            A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.
